Santa Barbara Zoo Home to Two New Penguin Hatchlings


Two Humboldt penguin chicks hatched recently at the S.B. Zoo (500 Niños Dr.). Though the two share the same parents, the chicks arrived about one month apart in April and March and are being housed off-exhibit for the next few weeks until they learn to swim. For updates on the baby penguins’ progress, visit sbzoo.org or call 962-5339 for more info.
